Art Impressions Challenge #28 Anything Goes

Wowzer!  Here I am with back to back AI Challenge posts.  That just goes to show you how late I almost was with my last entry.  This week it is "Anything Goes".  I had fun creating this card for many reasons.

1.  I did not even know I owned this stamp.  Found this Art Impressions,  Little Dress-Up Girl in my bags of unmounteds and she is #H940.  I colored her in Copics and added some sparkle pen to accent.


2.  I always love when I can use up things from my stash.  My chipboard letters and the Prima flower w/pearls are both from when I did nothing but scrapbooking, and QVC sold us things in bulk.  LOL!

3.  My plaid background was made using the reinkers on a baby wipe, drug across glossy card stock.  I love the results and you can customize to fit your needs.


4.  I have really been trying to decorate the insides of my cards more, and I was able to use an Art Impression sentiment there.  It is # G941. 

My card stocks are Fresh Asparagus and Pure white from Gina K. Designs.  My inside has a bit of Melon Mambo from SU!.  Pearls and punched leaves are used for embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by and a happy TGIF!  Kids are coming in to do some wedding stuff, so I am sure it will be busy around here.

What an adorable image! Love the background and chipboard letters and I still have a lot of that bulk-bought QVC stuff around myself. We should get together and pool our resources and make a bloggers scrapbook eh?

Mary Anne,
This is adorable, what a great find! It's make me think of a little girl about three getting into Mom's stuff. Love all the detail.
